"It has been difficult to find good texts for my courses, but Concepts of Chemical Dependency has been an excellent book to use and I intend to continue using it as long as it remains as well done as it has been in the past. . . Chapter 19 on addiction as a disease of the human spirit is as clear and simple an explanation as I've ever encountered on the spiritual aspects of addiction. Well-done. When I teach this chapter, most students have an 'ah-ha' experience."
"Doweiko's book has a lot of positive things going for it. In addition to covering most of the routine topics, it also covers some of the important topics that are left out of many books. For example, Inhalants and Aerosols, Anabolic Steroid Abuse, and Over-the-Counter analgesics give the text a great deal more practical value than some of its competitors."
